Here's wishing you the best of holiday seasons from the staff here at Rubber World ... many of whom were relieved to find out that when they heard talk of reduction in size it had nothing to do with staff size.

We interact with a number of professional associations covering the polymer industry and this staff was one of the best to work with.

I'm wishing that members of the Rubber Division will have plenty of patience in dealing with what evolves. The amount of years of experience that can't be replaced will make some of the most routine matters trying times for both staff and members alike.
